"Our family has used this receipt for years! Wonderful, especially with Texas Toast & butter Crisco."

"This recipe is not good fluffy french toast. Whoever rated 5 stars in the reviews must have been family or friends of the creator of the recipe. I made it and it is pancake bread! Just look at the ingredients. If I wanted pancakes then I would make them but I prefer french toast so I was upset with the results. When I looked up how to make fluffy french toast I wanted something like Denny's french toast because there big and fluffy. Not pancake bread! It's either pancakes, or french toast and this recipe is a failure so don't waste your time making it if your expecting french toast."

"My falimy and I enjoyed this recipe. It's like french toast and pancakes in one. I used regular sandwich bread (all I had in the pantry) and I did add cinnamon and vanilla to the recipe. It's just what I always do when making french toast. Will make again. :-)"
